You Give, We Give

About
As a nonprofit 501(c)3, in addition to entertaining, we believe our productions can and should do more. In 2015, SDMT launched the YOU GIVE, WE GIVE campaign to prove that theatre connects us and our audiences to bigger issues within our community. Not only does this program raise awareness and support for our nonprofit partners throughout the community, it also provides access to theatre to groups who might not otherwise have the opportunity to attend.

The after school hours are significant in the potential dangers and risk behaviors they invite for unsupervised youth.  Equally important is the often lost opportunity for children’s healthy development and enrichment. According to the Afterschool Alliance, nearly one-quarter of our young people, an astounding 1.7 million in California, are alone and unsupervised after school. Many of these youth don’t have access to affordable after-school programs.

 

The Clubs currently operate a fleet of nine passenger school buses and eight, 15-passenger vans which provide transportation to children from  area schools to eight of our sites located throughout the county: Baker and Conrad Prebys (Escondido); Sulpizio (Poway); 4S Ranch; Clairemont; Roberts (Linda Vista); Conrad Prebys Ramona and Payne (National City). Most of the buses we operate are extremely old, and due to new state regulations, they will no longer meet state emission standards in 2020 and must be taken out of operation. Five of the eight vans are more than 10 years old.

 

One of the top priorities of our long-term strategic plan is to ensure that we provide safe, reliable transportation to any young person who needs it. To realize this vision, we have purchased eleven new buses. Nine of these buses were purchased outright. Each bus costs $125,000. BGCGSD took out a loan in order to pay for the remaining two buses. This will enable us to continue providing critical transportation services to our existing members, and to increase our transportation capacity to serve an additional 200 children each day.
